The world’s first gaming laptop to feature 7nm technology is given a fitting name by MSI. The MSI Alpha 15. The new laptop features the Radeon RX 5500M GPU, in addition to the AMD Ryzen 7 3750H processor, the former giving it its bragging rights to being the first gaming laptop powered by 7nm chips.

While the MSI Alpha is a new lineup under MSI’s broad umbrella of laptops, it still comes with what MSI is known best for. Powerful cooling and great audio. The MSI Alpha 15 touts a 7-heatpipe cooling system, promising to let the Radeon RX 5500M graphics and Ryzen 7 3750H perform at their peak.

Meanwhile the audio is handled by MSI’s Giant Speaker technology and Nahimic 3 software. It is Hi-Res Audio certified too, for those who care about such things.

For gamers, the MSI Alpha 15 will be a real treat too as it comes with a 144 Hz FreeSync display. If you purchase it before the end of 2019, you will also get a free copy of either Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint or Borderlands 3. The choice is yours.
